    Pros

    Junior or immediate supervisors are understanding, caring, and act as a shield between you and senior management.

    Strict executive management always looking for results no matter the priority or resource availability. Jumping to conclusions using draft data is common.

    Pros

    Friendly colleagues; most people of similar level were nice and helpful. Focus on novel pursuit of interesting science. Unclear what could have been.
